MORE MEDIA WATCH BRIEFS

Shiv Sena's Saamana says media have been reporting talks between the party and BJP which were not even held, and accused them of distortions. Fortunately, it noted, when Gandhi and Jinnah met for their long talks, there were no TV crews outside second guessing what was being said by whom. Though a mouthpiece, it claims to also be a professional newspaper.

Journalists can contibute to diplomacy when the occasion demands. With the interview billed as ‘India on the world stage’ Fareed Zakaria’s 'world exclusive’ on CNN was statesmanlike, not inquisitorial. He sought to set the stage for a state visit, hence all those questions on the India–US relationship. Hence also the restraint. Zakaria did not interrupt the PM’s lofty assertions on India growing at the same pace as China by asking about the poverty and inequality here. No follow up questions allowed?

Two Indian correspondents in the US paint contrasting pictures of President Obama’s nominee for US ambassador to India. K P Nayar of the Telegraph says Richard Rahul Verma is a lightweight who is unlikely to have direct access to the President in case of a crisis, once he is in Delhi. Chidananda Rajghatta’s profile in TOI says he is a consummate Washington insider who has a strong supporter in Hillary Clinton, who could become President in 2016.
